PhD, Johns Hopkins University, 2006
MSc, Tsinghua University, 1998
Dr. Huang is primarily interested in fundamentals and applications of advanced technologies for water treatment and public health protection. His research has been focused on three areas: 1) principles and applications of membrane water treatment, 2) understandings of the interfacial behaviors of emerging contaminants (organic micropollutants and engineered nanomaterials) in natural and engineered environments, and 3) evaluation and development of sustainable technologies for safe drinking water supply in low-income countries. It is the belief of his research team that advanced water treatment should not be a privilege of the rich but an opportunity for every individual to gain access to safe and clean water. Currently, his team is exploring the possibility of combining nanotechnology and traditional processes for cost-effective water purification. To ensure the safety of nano-enabled materials, efforts have also been made to understand their fates and toxicity in applications.
